revenue increases. joining me now are our msnbc analysts, ezra klein and jared bernstein. ezra, we have the simpson-bowles to deal with, but most important thing, i'm scheduled to fly next friday. i have a change of planes here, what does that look like? how many air traffic controllers working? one per airport? what is going on. >> i wouldn't say the air traffic controller situation was looking so great before, i have flown out of jfk before. it is not easy, but the big thing about the sequester is not the amount of cuts that are crazy, although they are probably too high. it is not where the cuts are even going in a broad way is crazy. it is even within that, what we have done with the sequester is we can't choose where the cuts go. we can't say air traffic controllers, we actually need that. what we don't need so much of is farm subsidies, we get everything except a number of sort of social security and medicaid and a couple of other low income programs. everything else gets the exact same percentage cut no matter how valuable it is. so your air traffic controllers get nailed even as

contributor jared bernstein, former chief economist to vice president biden and we welcome back new york republican congresswoman nan hayworth. in my world of free market economics as you know, spending cuts, limited government, stronger private sector, great for economic growth, happened during the clinton years, happened during the reagan years, happened after world war ii, it happened during the calvin coolidge '20s. >> uncle, uncle. >> the calvin coolidge '20s. >> i think your $44 billion is a legitimate number because that's t o the outlays versus the cuts which takes place over more than one year. it comes out of the economy, just not in one year. if you look at the nonpartisan shops who have looked at the impact on the economy, they all coalesce around one number. they say this sequestration if it takes effect and holds will take about .5% of gdp growth out of the 2013 economy. now, that doesn't sound very good to me. we were just talking about how the economy's already growing too slow as far as we're concerned. i don't believe the fourth quarter recessionary number. i think that

and jared bernstein next. >>> if congress allows this meat cleaver approach to take place it will jeopardize our military readiness to take place, border controls will see their hours reduced. fbi agents will be furloughed. federal prosecutors will have to close cases and let criminals go. air traffic controllers and airport security will see cutbacks, which means more delays at airports across the country. thousands of teachers and educators will be laid off. >> president obama made it real today showing exactly what will be cut if the sequester spending cuts take effect next week. the president also made it clear that any potential replacement for the sequester must be balanced. >> republicans have proposed some ideas, too, and so far at least what they have expressed is a preference where they would rather have these cuts go into effect than close a single tax loophole for the wealthiest americans. not one, well, that is not balanced. that would be like democrats saying we have to close our deficits without any spending cuts whatsoever. it is all taxes. that is not the position democrats

that will happen. joining me now, former economic adviser to vice president joe biden, jared bernstein, a man who is always re-thinking what he is doing, how are you? >> i'm fine, ezra. >> and what else did you see in the reports? you got a good eye, what caught yours? >> one thing i saw was the revisions to last year's employment growth was such that i thought we were adding 150,000 jobs a month in 2012. i thought it was okay. turns out we're adding 180,000 jobs per month last year. so we did a bit better. over 2 million jobs on the year. now on the gdp side, most economists, don't think it will stick. i think it it volatility, i think there were unusual things that happened. in the quarter to quarter changes, it is better to look year over year. >> and do you mean what happens in a month or two we'll get the updated numbers and it will say we grew by .4 or something? >> that is what i'm saying -- >> the initial measures are usually off by 1.3%, they're all preliminary. >> i go year to year, 1.5% is the gdp growth year to year. now if gdp is growing around 1.5%, which i think it probably is, tha

is congresswoman marcy kaptur, democrat of ohio and jared bernstein, a former economic policy adviser to vice president joe biden. he is also a cnbc and msnbc contributor. thank you both so much for being here. i'm sorry i made you sit through the alaska gun rights thing. >> it's fascinating. >> there is a lot going on that we aren't working on because we're working on this problem that we created for ourselves. jared, let me start with you. how it is only 6% of americans understand what is true about the deficit right now? >> i think it has to do a lot with all the noise that is trying to point there in the other direction. there are a lot of people in this town whose policy agenda, whose ideology really depends on everyone's hair being on fire about the budget deficit. because their ultimate goal is to cut government, to slash government, to get rid of social insurance. and if people actually are aware of the kind of numbers you just showed, the fact that the deficit has fallen by half as a share of gdp. they say we have a spending problem. i just looked at the numbers the other day. betwee

bernstein. jared, okay, tell us. why is the number nine the right number at the right time when it comes to the minimum wage? >> because if you look at the history of minimum wage increases, they've always been in the kind of range that we're contemplating if we're talking about going from the current federal level of $7.25 to $9 in 2015. the chart that you're showing there is one that i made over the weekend. i don't know what you do for fun on the weekends, but i like to take the alog rhythm of minute pages -- thanks for allowing me to talk about log rhythms on television. if there are children questioning whether you use your math in real life, sometimes you do. this shows that historically percentage changes in minimum wage increases have all been fairly much in the same change and that range right now would take us to about $9 an hour. that's important because at that range you don't see the kind of job loss effects that opponents predict. >> okay. jared, well, you have just offered us some mathematical science. here is what republicans think of raising the minimum wage. take a list

obama adviser jared bernstein thinks econic austerity ishe wrong medicine to take right now. >> you have public governments across europe and the united states sort of pulling out their fiscal supports too soon and that's hurting the middle class. >> reporter: of course conservatives consider bloated public spending a burden that threatens long-run economic growth which would hurt the middle class. and that's part of the problem, there are sharp differences over the best way to generate middle class jobs. and there is also a cultural piece of the puzzle. tucked away in our collective memories is the id that a mide class jorequiring hard work and basic skills can and should support a family for life. >> we came out of world war two with a very, very untouched economy and the rest of the world was in ruins literally. and we benefited enormously from that and people think back to that era and think, gee, we should be able to do that again. >> reporter: but that is less and less likely in a world where global competition and rapidly changing technology are washing away and replacing middle c

is a krnter for and an msnbc contributor and jared bernstein is senior fellow at the center of budget and policy priorities. speaker john boehner says, and i'm quoting him, the revenue issue is now closed. jared, given that the president has already given a 2 to 1 ratio in terms of cuts to revenues, if anything should be closed, it's any further cuts, isn't it? >> exactly. the spending cuts thus far amount to $1.5 trillion over ten years and the tax increases $600 billion. so that's larger than a ratio of $2 of cuts to $1 of tax increases. and you're getting right to the heart of something that perhaps we don't quite focus on enough, which is why the heck are we stuck here? and the answer is that -- >> please, tell us. >> the answer is that republicans refuse to give on revenues. the president's plan that kristin was just referring to, that offers significant cuts, and not just cuts in discretionary spending of the type that the sequester has, but cuts in entitlements, the thing that -- kind of the holy grail for a lot of republicans and outside of many democrats' comfort zo

of african studies at lehigh university and jared bernstein is an msnbc contributor and former adviser to vice president joe biden. and we are watching live pictures of a cloture vote in the senate that will determine the path forward for secretary of defense nominee chuck hagel. as soon as we get the results, we will provide them. but, jared, if i can start with you, republicans are rushing to rescue mr. rubio after his disastrous rebuttal to the president, but i think much worse than his uncontrolled perspiring was his call for a balanced budget amendment, something that would require brutal cuts and austerity. now, just today the european union statistical office has confirmed that the entire region of europe, the eurozone, is experiencing a recession, and while economic growth here in the u.s. jumped by 2.2% in 2012, it shrank by half a% in the eurozone, precisely because of the same policies that rubio espouses. so, jared, shouldn't we be focused on mr. rubio's ludicrous economic policies rather than his inability to cope with prime time television? >> i mean, if you wanted a set
